Lock and alerts app for Sony TV

Hey guys, I own an app company that's currently operable on Sony Smart Tv's. I wanted to seek the opinions on those on here.

Would you guys be interested in downloading an app that would automatically lock and send alerts to your phone in the event of a house break in?

Just seeking your thoughts, feedback, or opinions thank you.

Already have such.

It's one of those cloud cameras that detect motion, take a video and send a picture to me via text messaging. On a TV? The power that a TV would consume would make my choice be "nope, never would use that."

It's debatable if this is a good thing. Do you really want to hurry home to confront people that are that aggressive?

What's the name of that?

I understand avoiding a confrontation altogether. But in that event, it can help pinpoint time of burglary with the alert. You could also notify neighbors of suspicious activity going on at your home and possibly get a vehicle/license plate number to catch culprits. Retrieve all your stolen items back, not just Smart Tv.

The Dropcam.

As to other video surveillance you can add external cameras to other areas as you see fit.

There's almost no end to how much CCTV and DVR you can deploy today.

True

There's a lot of camera's and security systems out there. Unfortunately they require high monthly fees

There are models without fees.

I'm not going to list them all but focus on your top post about a Sony TV app.
